Reading Ginsberg at Poetry Project

Caught the tale end of the Ginsberg tribute reading at Poetry Project last night. I was blown away by CA Conrad's reading of half a dozen or so poems incluing "is about" and "you know what i'm saying," and one that he sang. Beautifully. Absolutely beautifully. A great reminder that poems, even list poems, are about, or should be about so much more. It was great to see some passion again! Fuck all the over-serious, or overly arch shit. Just poetry. Refreshing as hell.
